  • Riesling Icewine | Tantalus
    first major frost came early in 2013 providing our winemaking team with excellent grapes and clear and pristine pressings The fruit showed the highest natural sugar and acid content we have ever seen and the result is a precise wine with wonderfully clean fruit flavours too numerous to describe There s a whole fruit basket on the nose and palate The texture is lush but the racy acidity balances the sweetness perfectly giving the wine a wonderful high tension and lengthy finish The grapes were harvested in the early morning of November 21st at a chilly 10 degrees celsius Conditions were perfect with the fruit intact and showing very little dessication Each year we harvest the frozen grapes from the same two old vines Riesling blocks that were planted in 1978 The wine is blessed with its own unique intensity and complexity and this can only be attributed to the mature deeply rooted vines Riesling Icewine 69 90 Buy Wine Flip Riesling Icewine 2013 This golden elixir exhibits wonderful aromatics of white peach pear and stewed lemon The texture is lush but the racy acidity balances the sweetness perfectly giving the wine a wonderful high tension and lengthy finish Technical
